Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a man with his car on a Syracuse interstate highway, the Syracuse Police Department said in a statement.
Boeheim, 74, hit and killed 51-year-old Jorge Jimenez, who was walking outside his vehicle on Interstate 690 around midnight, roughly three hours after the Orange beat Louisville.
"I am heartbroken that a member of our community died as the result of last night's accident," Boeheim said in a statement. "Juli and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Jimenez family. Out of respect for those involved, I will not be providing further comment at this time."
The Onondaga County district attorney, William J. Fitzpatrick, also told Yahoo Sports Thursday that there won't be any immediate legal ramifications after his role in the car accident.
After Jimenez's car lost control and hit a guard rail, Boeheim tried to avoid the vehicle, which was in the middle of the road, and struck and killed Jimenez.
Boeheim, who is cooperating with the investigation, blew a .00 BAC when given a routine blood-alcohol content test, and was interviewed and subsequently released by police.
Speed, alcohol and drugs were not factors in the crash, according to police. It is unclear if icy driving conditions played an impact in the initial crash or Boeheim's role.
The investigation is still active and ongoing, according to the police.
"We are saddened by the death of a member of our Central New York community," Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack said in a statement. "On behalf of Chancellor Kent Syverud and the entire Syracuse University community, we extend our deepest condolences to all impacted by this tragic accident. Coach Boeheim is in contact with local authorities and cooperating fully. Out of respect for those grieving, there will be no further comment at this time.
